Ah!  Aptitude also has the ability to select tasks.  One of the
categories in the defaults displays is 'Tasks' and under that there are
things like 'End User' and 'Localisation'.  For XFCE you open 'End
User' and the highlight 'Xfce Desktop Environment' then press '+',
which select the packages in the task for installation.



And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
